I have never seen such single click behavior (at least under Linux,
but since I have used Windows maybe 4 or 5 days in the past years...),
but I really like it as it is quite usefull : in single click mode,
there is now (r20095) a way to see the size of a file by hovering it.
Without this behavior, one has to right click (in single click mode)
to get the size in properties dialog (ok, it is also possible to
click and drag the cursor to select the file with a selection
rectangle, but this is is even less efficient).
P.S.F.S (PS for Slackers) :
